We are an organization whose main objective is to carry out the mandate laid out in The book of ACTS of the Bible , Acts 1:8, "But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria,
"and to the ends of the earth.”
We intend to show God's love to all people whether near or far by offering Infectious Disease medical services to facilities without access to Specialists and to use the practice of Medicine to carry out this mandate as best as we could regardless of race, sexual orientation, age or gender.
Dr. Avrille George MD, the owner, was moved while on an overseas medical mission trip to Burundi to pursue the field of Infectious Disease. Dr. George was born in Trinidad and Tobago and migrated to the US at age 14, where her family settled in Brooklyn, New York. She attended Brooklyn Technical High School then earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Chemistry from Brooklyn College of the City University of New York in 2001. She later received a full scholarship to attend Ross University School of Medicine in the West Indies and graduated with Honors in 2006. She completed her Internship and Residency in Internal Medicine at SUNY Downstate in Brooklyn NY in 2009 then her Fellowship in Infectious Disease, also at SUNY Downstate, in 2011.
She is a member of the Infectious Disease Society of America (IDSA), the Society for Epidemiology of America (SHEA) and International Society of Travel Medicine and the American Telemedicine Association (ATA).
She earned a Diploma in Tropical Medicine and Hygiene from the University of Alabama at Birmingham through the Gorgas Clinical Tropical Medicine course in Peru in 2013 and received her Certification in Travel Medicine from the International Society of Travel Medicine in 2015.
With a heart for the under-served and under-privileged we would like to make Infectious Disease Specialty Services available to Facilities in Rural Areas and to those that lack the expertise. Everyday, increasing, assiduous, time constraints and technological friendliness increase the appeal of telemedicine as an instrument to conquer the quandary of doctors' visits and access to specialists.
With us incorporating telemedicine as the medium of parlay we would be able to marry convenience and expertise and make the specialist’s appointment a virtual expedient nonevent. We can use this same technology to lead and manage Antimicrobial Stewardship and Infection Control Programs.
Beside being a great resource for patients, Rural Infectious Disease is a solution for facilities with need for ID services, but not enough volume or unknown volume to justify hiring a full time Infectious Disease Specialist.
